The fourth installment in the series, the Friday webinar takes place via Zoom and Facebook Live from 5-6 p.m. (ET). Hosted by Spud Marshall, the Sullivan Foundation’s director of student engagement, it will focus on the role that social enterprises and social leaders can play in helping communities survive and emerge from the coronavirus crisis.

Pugh is a past presenter at the biannual Ignite Retreats hosted by the Sullivan Foundation each spring and fall in North Carolina. This spring’s event had to be canceled due to health concerns.
